To quote my mom.. "Magnetic polish? What else will they come up with!" I saw swatches of the 4 Icing Magnetix polishes from The PolishAholic (here) and thought OMG those are AWESOME!!!
Of course I am not as good as The PolishAholic (her name is Jen also) but I tried these out anyway. My results were not nearly as perfect and these were extremely hard for me to photograph.
For these Magnetix polishes I've read to do 2 coats. 1 without the magnet, and then the 2nd with the magnet. I let the first coat dry on all of my nails and then started on the 2nd coat. After painting each nail I closed the bottle and used the magnet for 20-30 seconds, then painted the next nail. This didn't take too much time. I tried to alternate the direction that I used the magnet between each nail, which didn't help when I was trying to take pictures. I'm thinking maybe I count too fast, because these did not come out as well as others I've seen! Maybe the red will be better?
Below is a picture of the magnet. It has a lip to rest on your cuticle so that you don't hit the wet polish and mess it up. It's round and not too big, so I also had a feeling that maybe my nails are too long for it, and that's why the ends looks unaffected. This magnet is straight and the magnet that I have on the red bottle is wavy so I am excited to try that one soon.
